Amaranth, one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world

It is gluten-free and contains a multitude of valuable ingredients such as protein, calcium, iron, B vitamins, magnesium and potassium . What is it about? Of course amaranth, one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world. Its undoubted advantage is that it tastes delicious both in the sweet and sour form.

Amaranthus is a plant which history dates back nearly 5 thousand years! Although its taste and health-promoting qualities have already been appreciated by the Aztec and Incan tribes, in Europe for a long time, more often than on plates, it could be found in gardens and among balcony plants! Fortunately, the return to natural food and more balanced meals, again allowed us to discover the advantages of amaranth. It has even been hailed as THE GRAIN OF THE 21st CENTURY! That’s called a staggering career!😊

In terms of the amount of nutrients, amaranth exceeds many traditionally cultivated cereal crops. Thanks to its high fibre content and low calorie content , we feel full after consumption, while not getting fat. What’s important, amaranth contains 5 times more iron than the popular spinach , and in addition in a much more assimilable form. This should be particularly important for people with anemia, pregnant women and athletes .

Why amaranth is it still worth to like? It is a gluten-free alternative to classic oatmeal, it is an exceptionally valuable source of well assimilated protein , it contains good for health fatty acids , which effectively protects our body against cardiovascular diseases . Let’s reach for amaranth also in the moments when we are experiencing unpleasant contractions or restless leg syndrome . Amaranth is a source of valuable magnesium and potassium , and at the same time has exceptional taste qualities ! That’s why it is an always-good idea to snack on Amki Superfoods with amaranth everyday!
